Hi everybody, anyone with a tip for me?
I am trying to get my scanner, Epson Perfection 660 going under RED Hat 9.
I downloaded the newest version of SANE, as targz. Unpacked it. Then
I also downloaded the relevant targz for an Agfa snapscan, which is what the scanner is, apparently.
I tried, as su, ./configure. No such file.
I tried make. No makefile.
I tried automake, no something or other.
Why don't SANE supply a makefile with the download. Where can I get it??
This all worked super with Spiralsynthmodular. Where is the makefile I need?
Thanks for any tips in advance
I get no sane devices found (I would mind if it found an insane device, as long as it scans!! Just a joke)
I have installed the firmware from Epson (tail_058.bin), put the firmware path and /dev/usb/scanner0 bus=usb in snapscan.conf, and the vendor and product id in /etc/modules.conf.
scanimage -T worked once.
scanimage -L works sometimes.
sane-find-scanner finds (probably) Epson Perfection 660 on /dev/usb/scanner0
I have now run out of ideas, except to buy another scanner!! Which one?
The Epson Perfection 660 is an Agfa Snapscan. The snapscan.config is in /etc/sane.d, where all the others are too.
There is no # in front of the line, as I got rid of it.
And the other details (vendor and product id) are in /etc/module.conf.
Linux is just not ready to handle all scanners.
There is also usr/local/etc/sane.d, but I made sure that the snapscan.config is the same in both diretories. By default, linux looks in /etc/sane.d
Distribution: Currently Suse 11.1 but have RH7,8,9 / Fedora 7,8_64,9_64,&10_64
I am at a loss
I use an epson multifunction printer/scanner
it took me several months to to get the scanner working
and then it was by chance
one of the other LQ posters ( rberry )
bought a similar model and fixed his
search on his user name or CX5200
he had a link to a postingon linuxprinting.org
about how to get the scanner on the MFP to work
these may also help you
but if sane sees it and you have drivers for it
then it should work
you may , as I did for so long
have multiple instalations of sane causeing it not to work
if you are running redhat
it came with one
if you installed a tarball from the sane site
then you have two
